Horses are a major responsibility. They can cost several hundred dollars per month to feed and care for. If they have health issues and boarding costs, then they can be closer to a thousand dollar per month commitment. Rescue horses have very specific health needs most of the time and that is exactly how Matt and Dave got interested in creating products for horses. They had friends who rescue horses and this is how they learned about the costs involved and the medical needs of horses.
By supplementing horses with CBD, many of their health issues can be controlled and relieved. It wasn’t feasible to give a horse CBD oil, however. They are such large animals that the amount of oil would be too much and it wouldn’t be cost-effective either.
Remembering that cost is a huge factor, the guys set out to create a product that would be a perfect supplement for horses, while providing the higher doses of CBD for their weight and size. These pellets are the result of a lot of research. They’re one of the very first products made especially for horses that are affordable and work. With CBD in them, they have all of the benefits that CBD products do for other animals.
How Do Our Equine Hemp Pellets Work?
Hemp is used in creating many healthy products for pets and for humans alike. When it is taken from certain parts of the plant, it may contain CBD. The stalks contain this phytocompound, as well as many other nutrients that are capable of improving health, relieving pain, and even working to promote better moods and less anxiety.
These are all issues that befall the aging equine, but they could also impact the health of younger animals as well. Some horses that are jumpy and nervous, for example, could benefit from the calming effects of CBD in their system.
When the seeds are used alone, they are extremely high in protein, fiber, and all three of the Omega-rich fatty acids - 3, 6, and 9. These are an excellent supplement to help with heart health and the entire cardiovascular system. These amino acids and oils combine to create a healthy body from the cellular level.
Your horse will benefit from healthier skin, coat, hooves, and improved circulation. In fact, you’ll notice the difference within a few short weeks and they will feel the benefits the very same day that they receive their first dose. In fact, the hemp pellets will begin to work in the body within minutes. If they’ve been experiencing pain from arthritis, for example, they’ll begin feeling some relief from that within a few minutes in most cases.
The good news for you is that we have, instead of using one or the other, used the entire plant in our formulation so that your horse will receive all of the benefits of the hemp plant. This means that your equine will be able to reap the benefits of pain relief - joint pain and pain due to aging. He’ll also benefit from the omega oils that will provide him with a healthy cardiovascular system and beautiful skin and coat. Your horse, regardless of age, will begin to shine with a shine that he’s never had before.
His hooves will receive essential nourishment that will keep them from splitting and looking dry and uneven. Have you ever seen hooves that flake and peel? This can help those begin to become healthy again. A hoof that splits can be very painful and also cause a great deal of harm to the health of your horse. Remember the old adage, “no hoof, no horse” and you know that hoof care is absolutely essential to maintaining the healthy legs of a horse.
The In-Depth Reason Our Hemp Pellets Work
One of the reasons that our pellets work is because they are filled with CBD that occurs naturally in the hemp as a phytocompound. Let’s take a look at CBD, what it is, and the way it impacts the body.
First of all, CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol. This phytocannabinoid is a molecule that is very powerful when it enters the body. CBD is only found in cannabis plants, which is a family of plants that includes hemp. Don’t worry though, it’s not the same as marijuana.
Hemp has been used for centuries by many different cultures. It’s been known to be healthy for at least six thousand years when the ancient Chinese culture was using it as an edible. It was found in old pottery storage containers with other types of foods. Written accounts of the use of the plant have also been found.
Jump forward to the 1990s when the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was first discovered. This is a system within the body that creates its own cannabinoids. This system may be the most important system in the entire body and it appears that every living creature has one. This is the reason that humans and animals all benefit from hemp and hemp by-products, such as CBD or hemp seed oil.
The ECS is now thought to be the most important system in the body, in charge of overseeing the immune system, pain management, maintaining balance and homeostasis in the body, as well as managing moods.
When our pellets are consumed by your horse, they enter the body and immediately go searching for the ECS. The ECS is made of two types of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids made within the body, hence the term endo - meaning within. When the CBD in the pellets finds a receptor, it binds with it. CBD prefers one type of receptor, the CB2 receptor that is located all over the body except the brain. Those in the brain are CB1 receptors.
So the CBD goes all over the body, traveling until it finds the receptors with which it will bind. During its journey, it travels in the neural pathways, where it cleans and polishes the pathways, leaving a protective coating wherever it has been. This helps to keep the neural network healthy. When this happens, memory is enhanced, the focus is improved, and the overall mood is enhanced as well. With age, some memory loss is normal and senility tends to creep in also. CBD is able to help memory retention and fight the effects of this normal part of aging, even for animals.
As that CBD molecule travels through the body, it also blocks excessive signals of pain when they are on the way to the brain. This means that the body’s response to pain is decreased by way of the brain not getting the messages. It’s a simple way of fighting pain, without taking pain killers that only mask the pain using synthetic chemicals that can be addictive.
Hemp isn’t addictive. It’s a safe product that, when used as a supplement, can help to promote healing by giving the body nutritional support. It can help the body by relieving pain which can be debilitating and impactful to the mood and health.
Your horse can find health and happiness again, regardless of his age. Many senior horses live a much fuller life when they are able to be relieved of their pain. They can also live much longer if they are supplemented so that they have excellent cardiovascular health.
